power vr - stodag - 01-22-2013 07:56 PM

Henrick i just wanted to ask i have a galaxy scl powervfr TI OMAP 3630, im not gettin speed i just wanted to know what the problem is with this phone, cpu or gpu, Im after a new phone also so ie if its gpu i would avoid buying a phone with power vr etc thx. Also is the verex cache a work around for power vr drivers if so it finished cause im not gettin any speed cheers.

I meant is vertex cache a work in progress or is it finished

Well the main problem of your phone is the GPU, after it a 1+GHz Cortex A8 is not too bad, but a little short for the PSP emulator.
PowerVR is a great brand but you have a very old GPU.

About your future phone, it depends how much do you want to spend and if you can the nexus 4 is a good choise for 299$/€(Depend of your country)

uk m8, to think i swapped my xperia play for thisSad

yep i dont know where they sex nexus 4 in uk i cantshop online, although i run a littlewoods catalogue but i cant see any in there neither.

sry sex on the brain ahah my bad i meant sellSmile

I may have to look in second hand shops cash generator etc

For now even if you get a new phone it will be difficul to play any game on the phone to full speed. Maybe in 2 months.

Nexus 4 just can be buyed online, also in uk but is out of stock.

I prefer xperia play to SGS more if is SCL but the done is done.

If I were you I will wait 1-2 if the emulator get multicore support and see if it run smooth on phones likes mine (SGS2).
And depend on the money you could waste buy a phone or others SGS3 is 350 Pounds new.

If I have to buy a new phone today probably will buy a chinesse one like JIAYU G4 for 160 pounds more o less a little more powerful than a SGS 2 but I don't know how is the graphic I think also is a little weak. And is chinesse 1 months for receive it and no gurarantees

So if I were you I will wait a little.

PD: I think this thread is a little Off topic. We can continue there if they move it

no threads ok as it concerns ppsspp compatibility, also theres a few iv got in mind huawei ascend g330 zte grand x etc, i love tech ie mobiles but i dont like spending too much on a mobile, i like galaxy ace 2 aswell 800 mhz dual core good gpu also, if i bought that ivwould overclock to a possible 1.2 ghz, only problem for me would be screen size i would be going back a step, i like ascend p1 but gpu is powervr.

anyway for now till progress is made im hammering resident evila on fpseSmile

i might be gwttin a nexus 7 alsoSmile

Its a flipup between that and kindle fire hd.

Kindle Fire HD 8.9 has a PowerVR SGX544 GPU & it's working pretty good for me

I seen a video of devs using openCL on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 & I was wondering if someone could use that to get more power out of a emulator.

hi henrick I got a weird thing maybe a good one lets see, anyways not been on for a while so started checking latest builds etc no speedSmile also im only using one cso file(wipeout pure) mk doesnt work at mpment so i cant really test that, the strange thing is i tried 0.61 on your website as i never tried it and it runs not far off full speed. I couldnt belive it, its nearly playable so maybe there is hope Smile I thought i would tell you as you might be able to pinpoint the problem with power vr, it works ok in 0.61 but slow in the newest builds thx.


RE: power vr - stodag - 02-10-2013 09:47 PM

yep it looks like out of all the builds iv tried jit is kickin in on 0.6.1

Wipeout pure was faster because was frameskipping internally, hopefully real frameskipping will be implemented in 0.7. Wink


RE: power vr - stodag - 02-10-2013 11:18 PM

@carter cheers m8, i thought so was pretty fast but you could tell there was something like frameskipping , wasnt smooth but defo potential, frameskipping should help a lot.

ye i woild like to see that amongst other thingsSmile its a shame my gpu is poor my cpu 1.35 ghz, i think thats more than enouph gpu power vr sgx530. @ carter07 how does it run for you?, i seem to recall you sayin u got a power vr.thx

Also im gettin a tablet on wednesday dual core 1.6 ghz, gpu mali 400 mp dual Smile should be full speed.

I was gonna getva nexus but the non removable battery put me off.
